Padmavat: Karni Sena gives call for decisive fight on Jan 27

Shri Rajout Karni Sena on Friday gave a call to the Rajput community to gather in Chittorgarh on January 27 to wage a decisive "battle" against the controversial film Padmavat.

The Rajput outfit also demanded immediate resignation of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Prasoon Joshi for granting U/A certificate for the film.  

Karni Sena chief Lokendra Kalvi, at a press conference here, warned of a fresh agitation against the Ranveer Singhâ “Deepika Padukoneâ “Shahid Kapoor starrer Padmavat.
 
Kalvi has registered his disagreement with Joshi, who allowed Padmavat to be released with a U/A certificate, despite protests by a panel of advisers comprising two historians and a royal family member.
 
Kalvi alleged that Padmavat filmmaker is using their protests to get free publicity, "They are hardly concerned about our sentiments. They are using our protests as publicity tools," Kalvi said.
 
Earlier too protests were held at Chittorgarh fort and entry of visitors was blocked by Rajput outfits.
 
Former royals of Jaipur have already demanded a ban on the movie, stating that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film shows Rani Padmini in a bad light.

Objections
 
According to a release issued by the CBFC, the board had a meeting of their examining committee on December 28, which decided to give the film a U/A certification along with some modifications and likely change of title (from Padmavati to Padmavat) on the basis of the attributed material/creative source.  
 
Protests against some objectionable scenes in the Rs 200-crore film was held in most of the cities across the country. The Rajput body is alleging that there are two elements in the film which have no historical record. First is a scene in which Deepika Padukone is shown romancing with emperor Alauddin Khilji. The second objection is to Padmavati performing the 'Ghoomar' dance in a darbar, which they say is an affront to Rajput culture as no queen or princess would ever dance in a durbar.
